Traditionally, bead work in South Africa is the domain of women within the Xhosa, Zulu, Ndebele and Sotho tribal communities. Passed on through their mothers, grandmothers and other women in their community, the craft is thriving and forever evolving.


Monkeybiz, a non-profit organisation in Cape Town, provides women in township communities richly-coloured glass beads free of charge. These women then craft unique abstract animals using Africa's incredible wildlife and strong sense of family as inspiration.

All animals are designed and crafted as one-of-a-kind pieces.
